We have been brining for 2 years now. It is not a fluke - they turn out much better.

Sounds good. It doesn't work on pancakes though.

Re: How big is your bird?

Tony Chachere's butter marinade Cajun injector kit (Walmart). Low heat under foil midnight till at 275 or less. Roast the next day per directions will bread style Peperidge Farm Chicken and Herb stuffing. Stay out of the kitchen and let 'step daughter in spare room' do the work.

Heh heh heh

Since the spouse does 90% of the cooking these days I'll pass along these tips to him (or maybe NOT).* But, do you put anything-other than turkey-in the soup?? The carcass is still in the fridge, man, and I'm thinking tomorrow is turkey soup day.* Temperatures will be dropping to the 70s here in SO AZ, perfect soup weather.

Rough Turkey soup

A 12 qt. kettle

Put the turkey carcass (w at least two lbs of meat attached to bones, cover w/ water.

Boil/simmer 4-8 hours, the longer the better, the meat gets stringy which you may not like, but we do.

Pick out inedible gunk

Add 3-5 cut up stalks of celery, one carrot, a couple of medium onions. Add a small amount of any other veggie you want, but not too much. Start the reboil. Add some cooked pasta: Martha likes a few big lasagna noodles .

Add seasoning such as pepper or little Italian seasoning and salt as needed. Parsley is nice at this point or chives or green onions, etc.. Add dumpling balls. Simmer/boil for 10-15 minutes until dumplings are done.

Don't forget: husbands enjoy being grabbed at and fondled during the holiday season, especially in the kitchen when no one is looking. That's the other secret ingredient.

--Greg

Re: How big is your bird?

DW says we're (finally) out of turkey! With UNY temps in the unseasonable hi 50's, I'm thinking steak on the barby!
